As of summer 2018, the venue stood proud as the only five-star locale in Scotland to host every type of concert imaginable. Since opening its doors just over a century ago, people have come for the impressive Edwardian architecture. However, they have stayed for the immense talents on the stage and the excellent acoustics they enjoy, making Usher Hall tickets a great thing to buy and sell on StubHub.
The envy of concert halls in Scotland
As one of the premier concert halls in Scotland, Usher Hall has a great past but also a dazzling future. Never a year goes without some legendary artists and bands passing through the famous doors of Usher Hall, with many of them coming back for more. The final two years of the 2010s were no different. The autumn of 2018 brought a number of postmodern greats to the venue, with the sultry Caro Emerald selling out a whole two months before hitting the stage! Other great acts followed, such as singer-songwriter Tom Odell - who performed all of his best-loved, self-penned titles - and Swedish folk group First Aid Kit, whose unique style has captivated fans for over a decade. There was also something for the older generation, with tributes to Pink Floyd and Queen also being performed at the venue. 2019 would continue where its predecessor left off, with an appearance of UB40 that might be one of the biggest highlights yet. With every taste catered to, Usher Hall tickets are a hot sell year round!
Usher Hall: embodying the best of Scotland
None of this would be possible without the brains of Andrew Usher, whose distillery business enabled him to donate the funds necessary for a new concert hall in the Scottish capital. Andrew Usher never lived to witness its opening in 1914 but, in shunning Victorian design influences, the winning construction company created the most simplistic, classically designed theatre in the country. In time its distinct features - including curved walls and a dome - would influence other projects for its aesthetic and acoustic qualities. The artists that pass through the doors of the Hall are also inspired by Scotland's greatest creative minds, with sculptured panels depicting the likes of Sir Walter Scott, Robert Burns and Robert Louis Stevenson amongst others. Of course, music is just one creative milieu on offer at the venue. In the past, it has also hosted theatrical, political, religious and sporting events, making it one of the most diverse locations in Scotland. For that reason, Usher Hall tickets are always a hot sell on StubHub!
